Poor me …

... I am suffering with a kidney infection at the moment.  Yesterday I managed to get an appointment at the doctors and was given  a prescription for some pills.

I was warned that there are side effects.

  • headache – yep
  • dizziness – yep
  • nausea – yep
  • pins and needles – yep
  • various others -yep, they weren't kidding
Classic case of the cure being worse than the illness if you ask me.

I'm sorry to hear this, Sue. Hope you feel better very soon. Who needs those side effects when you feel badly in the first place. Take care.

Oh no! Kidney infection + drug reaction = not good!

Hope things get straightened out and you're back to 100% soon!

The mind boggles at the 'various others' - but seriously, get well soon!

Jackie said...

Oh Sue! I'm so sorry to hear that you're feeling so badly and that the cure is worse than the bit so to speak. I've had a kidney infection before and I definitely didn't have that reaction. Is there an alternative med that would work but wouldn't half kill you in the process? Hugs!

Sunnybec said...

Oh that's rubbish, get well soon. Hugs xx

Lynn said...

I'm so sorry to hear you're under the weather. I've had a few kidney infections myself, so I know they are awful. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Linda said...

Hopefully you'll be over it soon and won't have to take the pills. Maybe the side effects will lesson or disappear with time!

Darlene said...

Hubby brought home a cold, and shared it. I think it mutated before getting to me. I pulled rib muscles(?) and was so medicated I could not tell what felt worse. Being sick or being sick and medicated. Finally over it and VERY VERY happy.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

That is a shame....I hope you feel better soon!

Oh no, sometimes it's better not to know about the side effects, I'm sure it brings some of them on! Hope you feel better soon and don't have to take the pills for too long.

Trudi said...

Oh Noooo! That's not good! Hope the pills are working on the infection, and that it's not a long course! Keep taking them, rest, and recovery speedily :) Hugs x

I am just catching up on blog reading and am so sorry to hear that you are under the weather....but maybe by the time you get this you will be back on track? Best wishes for a speedy recovery, that is, if it hasn't happened yet. Be well!
